Recorded in February 1928 in Ashland, Kentucky. A rare example of the banjo used in a religious tune. This tune contains references to Enoch (Gen 5:21-24), Paul (Acts 16:25-26), Moses (Exo 3:2) and a strange account out of Ezekiel about walking bones (Ezek 37:1-10), not to mention Eve and "Satan a-tempting me."

Wish there was more of ol' Bascom up on this archive. Any fan of old-time music owes him a huge debt of gratitude for his extensive documentation.
Here's the lyrics:
DRY BONES

Old Enoch he lived to be
Three hundred and sixty-five
When the Lord came and took him
Back to heaven alive

[Chorus]
I saw, I saw the light from heaven
Shining all around
I saw the light come shining
I saw the light come down

For when Paul prayed in prison
Them prison walls fell down
The prison keeper shouted
"Redeeming love I've found!"

[Chorus]

When Moses saw that a-burning bush
He walked it around and around
Then the Lord said to Moses
"You's treadin' the holy ground."

[Chorus]

Dry bones in that valley
Got up and took a little walk
The deaf could hear
And the dumb could talk

[Chorus]

Adam and Eve in the garden
Under that sycamore tree
Eve said "Adam...
Satan never tempted me."

[Chorus]

Weirdly haunting--and I'm an agnostic! This fella has a brilliant sense of where the realms of the surreal and the mystical overlap...

Subject: Not too dry
Really interesting little song here, like the furious bamjo picking, and the lyrics, but get a load of this guy's delivery! Fun to listen to for sure.
